Saturday Spotlight: Amber at CharmedCeramics
Where are you from: I was born and raised in Idaho, but have been a Utah girl for the past 15 years. I currently live in beautiful Highland, Utah, about 20 minutes south of Salt Lake City).
What do you specialize in: Clay has been my obsession for the past five years or so. It all started with a pottery class offered by UVSC community education. This may sound strange, but I would lay awake at night thinking about clay and all the possibilities. In short, I found my passion.
Name and URL of store: I have two stores on etsy, one for my ceramic pendants (my most recent addition) and one for my pottery: & Blog address:
Where did the name come from: I originally wanted to do a little play on words and call the name of my store "Charmed," but that was taken, so I eventually came up with "CharmedCeramics."
How did you get started on etsy: I found etsy by doing a google search on pottery. I knew I wanted to some how do my own online store, but the whole idea of creating and running a website seemed overwhelming to me. When I found etsy, everything seemed to click into place. It was so easy, I eventually did two stores. I've had my pottery store since January, and my ceramic jewelry store since the end of May.
Advice for etsy sellers: Most of my experience on etsy has come from my pottery store. Probably the most important things I have learned are to take good pictures (I watched a few tutorials that helped me immensely), to try and list something every day, and to network with other sellers on etsy. I am currently a member of the etsy mud team. By following and participating in their thread and events I have learned many invaluable lessons. Thanks etsy mud team! What do I want customers to know about me and my product: I love what I do and want to share this love with others. Each ceramic piece is handmade with love and care. My goal is to bring a bit of joy to your life.
Shameless addictions: Obviously, clay is my main addiction, but I also love, love, love dark bittersweet chocolate. There is actually a clay called black mountain that looks like dark chocolate fudge, and I have to fight the temptation to take a little nibble ;)
